Prince Fielder Rumors: Wednesday

The Prince Fielder rumors have been surprisingly quiet, but here's the latest…

  • The Rangers are not confident in their ability to acquire Fielder, according to Yahoo's Jeff Passan (via Twitter). They don't want to give up too many prospects, but the Brewers are asking for a mammoth return. Passan notes on Twitter that first base is still a priority for the Rangers, who maintain interest in Jorge Cantu.
  • The Rangers have joined the Fielder fray along with the Angels and White Sox, tweets SI's Jon Heyman.  Fielder would already cost a lot in terms of prospects, so I can't imagine what it'd take to convince the Brewers to pick up most of his remaining $3.88MM this year too.  This is also the first we've heard in a while about the Halos being interested in Fielder.
